Connecticut is rich with history of entrepreneurship and innovation.
The Connecticut Historical Society, with support from Connecticut Innovations, is proudly displaying stories about Connecticut entrepreneurs, innovators, and inventors who have changed the landscape with their innovative ideas.
Innovation Destination Hartford visited the Connecticut Historical Society and toured the Connecticut Innovates exhibit, which will run through March 25, 2017.
CT LEGENDS OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP AND INNOVATION
The exhibit explores innovators from all over Connecticut including:
- Charles Kaman, who founded Kaman Corp., designed Ovation Guitars, and helped develop the Fidelco Guide Dog Foundation
The Connecticut Innovates exhibit also gives a nod to the ways in which today’s innovations build on prior inspiration—noting advances made by Connecticut companies including Dura Biotech and Protein Sciences.
CONNECTICUT—A HOT SPOT OF INNOVATION
